I love a good take out fake out! While this is NOT an authentic beef and broccoli recipe, you get the delicious flavor of your favorite take out items but you control what’s going into it! And since my family loves a good beef and broccoli recipe, I figured I should probably make my own variation. This was originally tested as crockpot beef and broccoli but it didn’t come out the way I had hoped. So I on a sheet pan and found that the flavor was there but it was easier and more nutritious!

Tips for making this beef and broccoli stir fry in the oven:

  • Slice the beef thin- I went with around 1/4 inch slices. That way it cooks up quickly which still being tender.
  • Be sure to slice against the grain.
  • Try and make the broccoli florets around the same size. I went with them being around 1 1/2 inches. This helps them cook more evenly.
  • Don’t leave out the cornstarch, it helps the sauce thicken.
  • Speaking of sauce, don’t leave all that extra beef and broccoli sauce that collects on the pan behind, I like to spoon it over my plate.

Ingredient information that’s helpful to know:

  • Beef: For this recipe I used sirloin steak, but you can also use flat iron steak. Slice it thin, against the grain
  • Broccoli: Try to make all the broccoli florets the same size so they cook evenly (about 1 1.2 inches)

Can I substitute something for the corn starch?

Yes, you can use arrow root powder, just be aware that leftovers may not reheat as well.

Can I make this ahead?

You, the uncooked meat will keep a few days in the fridge (provided it’s not past the use-by date for the raw beef).

Can you freeze beef and broccoli?

 Yes, but I encourage you to freeze before cooking in a zipper freezer bag- so the beef, broccoli and marinade in the bag.

What do you serve with this?

I like to serve it over rice, which you can totally make ahead. Other great dishes to serve this with include Rainbow Asian Chicken Salad, Crunchy Ramen Coleslaw and Cabbage and Pork Meatball Soup.

Leftovers and storage

Up to 4 days covered in the refrigerator.
